A Look Back: My Best In 2010

July of 2010 was my beginning.

July is when I started blogging full-force.

My blogging friend Megan at What Megan's Making, brought to my attention this morning the coming of the end of 2010. Thank you Megan. I owe this post to you.

Did I learn anything in six months? I sure did, but first I would like to do a quick review of some of my best dishes (the most popular).


And of course, my blue ribbon masterpiece, Pumpkin Cookies

Like Megan, I have learned, or you could say created some pretty bad habits within the last 6 months. I think I prefer the word "learned".

Am I going to try and resolve any of these bad habits? No way, no how, and my blogging friends, family, and local friends will just have to accept me the way I am.

My camera has become a permanent growth on my body. So if you invite me in, I show up with camera. It cannot be amputated.

My family will have to expect interruptions at meal times so I can get pictures.

If you expect me to supply a dish, I will show up with one piece missing.

One important thing that I have learned over the last six months is, the blogging community is a nation of its own. I have created some pretty strong (cyber) friendships through my blogging.
Bloggers are one race, one culture, one nation, one community. Kind of like: "If you mess with one, you mess with us all." , "I'll scratch your back, if you scratch mine.", "I will defend you till the end." I'm sure you get the picture...

I have also found out that a blogger must have a nice comfy chair.

There is never enough hours in a day.

It is best to buy ingredients in bulk.

I want a Waffle Iron.

And heavy whipping cream has an excellent shelf life.

It is okay to create your own filing system (TNT (Tried n True) & WTT (Want To Try)).

My journey as a blogger has definitely been interesting, exciting, eventful, and creative, and I'm sure the year to come is only going to get better.
I owe so much to my fans, followers, and fellow bloggers. Without you I would not be here.
I love you all!!
I hope all of you have many blessings provided to you in the new year. I am looking forward to our journey together.
See you in 2011!!
